Marie Newman has never run for anything, ever, in her 53 years. Not for village board in La Grange, where she lives. Not for the library board. Not even for class president when she was a student at Carl Sandburg High School in Orland Park. Nonetheless, she’s certain she can be the one to finally unseat Dan Lipinski, a seven-term incumbent in the 3rd Congressional District, in the March 20 Democratic primary. She’s not totally nuts to think she can pull it off.
In October, you were polling at 6 percent. Have you considered dropping out? I’m not well known across the state. But we’ve been successful raising money. Spending it to get in front of voters—that hasn’t happened yet. In the meantime, the other candidates haven’t taken off. And that creates a striking opportunity for a progressive middle-class candidate. So you wouldn’t say that J.B. Pritzker has taken off? I think it’s actually quite shocking.
Why do you want to be governor? I don’t want to die alone. I don’t want my children to leave the state and leave me behind. We have the biggest out-migration of college freshmen of any state in the country, with the exception of New Jersey. Because of our crumbling economy? [Business] isn’t going to flock to Illinois when 75 percent of every high school class needs remedial education before they can go to community college or a university.
I didn't know about "ask the publisher." A good Q would have been, Why do the male Sulzbergers always get the top job? On Trust and Transparency: A.G. Sulzberger, Our New Publisher, Answers Readers’ Questions https://nyti.ms/2F3IoMu
In Obama years, I read Jennifer Rubin @JRubinBlogger so i--who write about politics--could get a full-spectrum look @ DC pundit thinking. I don't read her as much anymore b/c her opinions mesh with scores of left-of-center views. I often agree w/her but she has lost her punch.
Dems should give durbin & Schumer a rest and put @senduckworth at the mic. No 1 can speak 2 shutdown w/more moral authority than the gravely war-injured 1st-term IL senator. Duckworth slams Trump: I won't be lectured on military needs by a 'five-deferment draft dodger' | TheHill
Yes, she could, if some of the 300K-plus marchers who hit downtown chicago today go out to vote. But in the U.S., with our shockingly low turnouts, that's far from certain. Could a Political Newcomer Unseat Illinois’s Most Conservative Democrat? https://goo.gl/D4jNRN
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
